Digestive System

As the term drew to a close, Year 4 got very scientific and started learning about the digestive system. This involved lots of ‘hands on’ experiments!

Our first experiment was the making of some poo. The children used food and different utensils to mimic the different organs involved when digesting food. For instance, tights resembled the small and large intestine, the children had a lot of fun. The picture below shows the end result…


The children also explored the effects sugar has on our teeth through using eggs and leaving them in different liquids. These included: coca cola, milk, vinegar, orange juice and water. We will find out the results when returning to school after half term.

Take a look at some other experiments we did in the pictures below…
